East Midlands-based drug and alcohol recovery charity Double Impact has announced it is launching a new virtual fundraising campaign encouraging people to ‘Run, Roll, or Ramble for Recovery’ from February 1st to the 28th, 2021.
This year the team have come up with a creative way to get people involved with the charity and fundraising. The ‘Virtual Run, Ramble, or Roll for Recovery’ campaign is taking place throughout February and is aimed at people who want to make a difference to the lives of those in recovery while also boosting their health alongside a supportive community.
Double Impact CEO Graham Miller is aiming to run 100 miles over the course of the month and will be sharing his top tips and advice to people who are new to running.
For many people exercise provides an opportunity to boost their physical health, but there is also a mental wellbeing aspect. Physical activity – even in short bursts – can lift a person’s mood and increase their energy levels.
After the year we have just had and the uncertainty ahead, we are encouraging people to get active for their mental and physical wellbeing – and as all things ‘local’ have become much more important to us during the pandemic, we would love to see people in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire getting behind Double Impact and directly helping their local communities,
